Abstract

We report a technique for direct phase derivative estimation from a single recording of a complex interferogram. In this technique, the interference field is represented as an autoregressive model with spatially varying coefficients. Estimates of these coefficients are obtained using the Kalman filter implementation. The Rauch–Tung–Striebel smoothing algorithm further improves the accuracy of the coefficient estimation. These estimated coefficients are utilized to compute the spatially varying phase derivative. Stochastic evolution of the coefficients is considered, which allows estimating the phase derivative with any type of spatial variation. The simulation and experimental results are provided to substantiate the noise robustness and applicability of the proposed method in phase derivative estimation.
